Too many comedies make their characters just caricatures, and push the comedy over a ledge. BETAS is funny AND the characters are people I cared about, I want to see them succeed while knowing they'll commit plenty of self-defeating laugh-your-ass-off mistakes. I want MORE!

I have to say.... This one surprised me. I didn't really know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It's funny. It's really f***ing funny. Only 10 minutes in and I was invested in the characters.
Avinash is so dead-on and hysterical.
I LOVE Hobbes. "Have you seen these robotic vaginas? .... Well, you will in 3-5 business days cuz I ordered one."
And the Moby cameo is fantastic. "Did you ever f*** an octopus? I f***ed an octopus. That's why I'm a vegan now."
Really hoping to see more. What can I say.... It appeals to the mega-nerd in me.

If you liked Social Network, The Guild, Big Bang Theory, or are just generally into tech and the tech community this is a no brainer. Funny, intelligent, accurate. If none of those things are your usual cup of tea, open one window with the show and pull up TechCrunch, Wired, Gizmodo, or PopTech in another window. Welcome to the 21st Century.

There are some obligatory stereotypes which get a fuller view in additional episodes. It wouldn't be a stereotype if there wasn't some small bit of truth.

I don't know if it has legs, but I'm going to watch every episode until I find out.

Joe Dinicol is a revelation. You get the feeling you've known him forever, but honestly, I didn't see a thing on his imdb that was recognizable to me. Maybe it's just his pitch perfect Joshua Malina delivery.

Ed Begley Jr is perfect. I'm pretty sure I was married to him at some point in the 70's. If I was married in the 70's. Sort of just playing himself again, which is perfectly acceptable.

What a great show. Love the character development. Love the writing. It's almost TOO smart for a mass crowd because most of the quick banter will go over most people's heads. Uses a lot of tech jargon. If they slow that down a bit, they'll grab a bigger audience. But I loved it.

So here was have a marvelous rarity; a "Geek Comedy" that isn't just a half an hour of pandering. This is pretty much exactly what Amazon should be creating with its studio, especially since it can honestly connect to the target audience.

Betas is a genuinely funny Pilot and though I don't know how long the central premise would carry a series the characters are solid, well thought out and frankly feel real. It's a testament to the writing that the cast could be developed as completely as they are in the space of 26 minutes. Add to that jokes that are smart, dirty and fast and all of the sudden the kind of Television that's been sadly lacking begins to take shape.

There is no talking down to the audience here, or carrying on tired old tropes. The tired awkward courtship thing at the core of so many other TV shows is turned inside out in about 15 minutes. It's a very clever take that introduces us to a strong female character who now has more to do in the show than be hopelessly pined at. I'd tune in to this on a regular basis, no question. I'd even spend the money I was saving for that robotic vagina...
